Co-op don't accept mortgagw

Asked by Hildy, New York, NY Thu Sep 25, 2008

Good afternoon - we contacted a realtor about a co-op in the Bronx, NY. She said the building don't accept mortgages - we must get a loan. What's up with this?

Frequently the case with HDFCs - or low-income or median-income affordable coops - is such that the price is too low for most financial institutions to consider it a mortgage. At UHAB, we work for free to sell affordable coops to qualified buyers who have enough to pay a downpayment and the maintenance and mortgage.

The credit unions and small banks we work with sort of set up loans instead of mortgages in some cases, because the "mortgage" would effectively wind up being about $30,000 or so.

A Mortgage is a loan. Maybe you need to work with a buyers agent for explainations. She might have meant you must have cash for the downpayment, and a motgage for the balance.
